When we draw aside in a quiet place to be alone with God, we can close the door to our busy world and open our hearts to the Father. Our darkened world of disappointments and trials will then be illuminated. We will enter into communion with God, we will sense His presence, and we will be assured of His provision for us. Jesus often went to be alone with the Heavenly Father. Sometimes it was after a busy day of teaching and healing. At other times, it was before making a major decision, or in a moment of despair.
Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12 NKJV
Imagine the beautiful gift that was tucked away and only brought out for special occasions. Oh how you loved that gift, but life interrupts, and you tuck that gift away again just until you have a little more time in your life . . . That gift was Jesus and He offers you everything – especially the time you need, eternity spent with Him. Open your heart to spending all your moments with Him. He will never lead you astray and you will never be alone again.
Praise Him, He is the Gift, and it was His plan of love, mercy, and grace for you.
Brothers and sisters, prayer is essential in the lives of believers!
Are you closest to those you do not talk to or to those you do? Our Lord wants to hear from you. Praise Him!
In His love, Laura
